Unreferenced text[edit]

I don't want to tag this in the article, because I'm worried it would look really bad, but after reviewing the current references, the following is uncited:

  • The impetus for developing the Bell 429 came primarily from the emergency medical services (EMS) industry, which has been looking for an updated helicopter.
  • The Bell 427 was originally intended to address this market, but the 427's small cabin size would not adequately accommodate a patient litter, and the systems did not support instrument flight rules (IFR) certification.
  • Bell is also partnering with Korea Aerospace Industries and Mitsui Bussan Aerospace of Japan in the helicopter's development.
  • The launch customer for the Bell 429 is Air Methods Corporation, the largest medevac provider in the United States.

While I believe that many of those are true, they need references. - Davandron | Talk 14:12, 11 February 2008 (UTC)


There's a Bell Helicopter brochure that includes specifications. It has no date on it nor a version or revision number. I don't see it online either. That was the source of my updating things like Vne. - Ehud Gavron —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavron (talkcontribs) 22:48, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

That's probably a newer version of the brochure on Bell's web site. link That should be added to the Bell site before long. -Fnlayson (talk) 00:39, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Yep, specs have been added to the brochure link above. The values on the specs page have been adjusted some recently also. -Fnlayson (talk) 22:19, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Change main image[edit]

I am considering switching the two 429 demonstrator images in the article now. This would move the in-flight image (File:Bell429-N108984-0584.jpg) to the infobox and move the display image (File:Bell 429.JPG) to later in the article. One issue is that the on display image is a better image, while the other image is a flight one. What do others think? -Fnlayson (talk) 15:03, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:52, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

I have just added archive links to one external link on Bell 429 GlobalRanger. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

A very new article about a relatively new aircraft. Very little information about development of the aircraft and how it was developed as a hybrid of the Bell 427. (Born2flie 01:04, 16 November 2006 (UTC))
